It's funny because with the total lack of character development in xcom (talking about when i played it on DOS and it carried over to the remake) I invented backstories and relationships for them.
I still remember when I recruited 2 people with the same last name, so automatically they were brothers. When one of them died, the other freaked out, I made him run to his body and carry it back to my dropship XD.
